Philadelphia Estate Planning Council


The Philadelphia Estate Planning Council offers many opportunities for member involvement. One of the most rewarding ways to get involved in the council is through our many committees. The committees encompass all activities of the council including planning our social events, publishing our highly informative newsletter, enhancing our website and developing our education programs.

All members are encouraged to actively participate on a committee. Committee participation provides the opportunity to expand your professional relationships and increase your leadership skills.
